Dan Ariely – The Human Capital Factor (Capital Allocators, EP.195)
Dan Ariely is a leading behavioral economist, author, entrepreneur and the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University. Dan is a founding partner of Irrational Capital, an investment research firm that quantifies the impact of corporate culture and employee motivation on financial performance. My initial conversation with Dan two years ago has been one of the most downloaded episodes of the show, and a recent research piece by JP Morgan entitled The Human Capital Factor that highlights his work got me excited to catch up with him again. Our conversation covers many aspects of his continuing research to identify positive human capital practices and performance in the workplace, including data collection and assessment, gender differences, goodwill, ESG, and changes during Covid. We then turn to the practical application of the research in the capital markets through two indexes and customized research. We close by talking about Dan’s new research projects and some of his favorite recent answers to his Ask Ariely column in the WSJ.

Dan Ariely's life, as a teenager, changed in a flash. Dan was living in Israel when he was caught in an explosion. When he regained consciousness, he found himself in a burn ward, his home for the next three years. Dan described his life there as a 'side actor'. His friends moved on with their lives, while his life and every decision involving his treatment were no longer his to control. As he dealt with his horrific pain Dan came to the conclusion that so many of the decisions on how patients were treated, were wrong. These insights and observations set Dan on a path of education and discovery. Today, Dan Ariely is one of the world's leading thinkers on how we think, feel and behave. Fifteen million people have watched Dan's TED Talks. A multiple-best-selling NY Times Author, a Professor at Duke University, and a co-founder with another extraordinary mind, Kelly Peters of BEworks, a Canadian consultancy with a global reputation. On Chatter that Matters, Dan and Kelly chat about why we make bad and irrational decisions, why others' bad behaviour might encourage you. We also look at how has COVID has stripped us of our freedom and control. Dan and Kelly will provide you with coping mechanisms and strategies to reclaim your sense of control and make better financial, career, and life decisions while offering compelling advice for business and political leaders.

The Irrational Truths Behind User Behavior, with Dan Ariely & Gigi Levy-Weiss
The NFX Podcast
We all think we know how our users behave. It turns out, we don’t. Founders over-index on rational assumptions, but users most often behave irrationally. Behavioral economics, by contrast, is the practice of truly seeing your users' emotions, beliefs, and habits. This kind of vision is critically missing from product design at most startups. In this episode, NFX General Partner Gigi talks with Dan Ariely -- the world’s top expert in behavioral economics and a renowned professor at Duke -- as he breaks down the most common types of irrational user behavior and shares frameworks for predicting how your users will actually behave.
